Filename timestamps (yyyymmdd-HHMMSS) are specified in the Gregorian calendar and UTC (Universal coordinated time, Greenwich mean time) timezone. Note that the seconds are sometimes 00 and sometimes 01. The minutes are always 00. One exception is 20081231-235959.
The files named pagecounts-yyyymmdd-HHMMSS.gz (compressed with GNU zip) contain plain ASCII text lines such as "af Sinn_F%C3%A9in 2 28163" meaning that the Afrikaans language (af) version of Wikipedia article [[Sinn Féin]] (in UTF-8, with whitespace replaced with underscores and then hex URL encoded) had 2 page views during the hour specified in the filename. A valid URL is made up of "http://" + language code (first field) + ".wikipedia.org/wiki/" + encoded article name (second field).
The files named projectcounts-yyyymmdd-HHMMSS contain plain ASCII text lines such as "af - 2701 31612142" indicating that the Afrikaans language (af) version of Wikipedia had a total of 2701 page views during the hour specified in the timestamp.
The last number on each line is either the same as the first number or the number of bytes transferred.
Starting with 20080517-100000 other projects than Wikipedia are also included, resulting in somewhat bigger files. The first field "af.b" indicates the Afrikaans language version of Wikibooks. The following kinds of project names are used (replace "af" with any applicable language code):
af - af.wikipedia.org - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

af.d - af.wiktionary.org - Wiktionary, the free dictionary
